What can one say about being the FIRST STOP on a Satriani tour? Satriani must know that his followers in Seattle, Washington, are of the best – the VERY best. My husband and I never miss a show, and this particular evening has become the very top on our list. An eclectic choice of pieces, presented with the signature flow of sound that only Satriani can present, against the backdrop of the ultimate light show. We were mesmerized. Only the very serious of music followers attend Satriani’s concerts and as such, it is a “whole evening” experience. The mood that night was electric (no pun intended); everyone was filled with expectation of complete satisfaction; everyone carried a seriousness of being somehow well versed in music of excellence; it felt like coming home. You are never disappointed with Satriani and on this evening of 2/25/2016 we were equally blown away by the very accomplished and equal standing of his band members: Marco Minnemann on drums, Bryan Beller on bass and the multi-talented Mike Keneally on keyboards and guitar. There were exceptional solos by all three and Minnemann delivered the most aggressive, succinct drum solo we’ve ever heard. Talk about being blown away. We will never miss Satriani’s concerts. His music is far reaching, technically challenging, and requires mental acuity to simply keep up with its flow. Be prepared to gasp, thinking only of perfection fulfilled. Satriani and those with whom he tours are one of a kind artists.
